RE:Squid Flies--Hard or soft body?

One of my biggest questions is % of body versus % of legs. Most patterns such as the lady squid that every one ties are 2/3 legs and 1/3 body but the natural is the opposite. The eyes further cement this. I have been working on patterns that are more proprotionally correct but then I was looking at some rubber squid jigs and are even worse % wise and these things work like mad. So does it matter or is the fish just catching the tenicles and the eye and chowing down?
